Measurement systems for efficacy testing on human skin also find their place for measuring on animals. Bioengineering methods are used to do efficacy testing on care, nutrition, pharmaceuticals and drugs for animals. Investigating skin and hair diseases in animals is another wide field. There are several studies from different applications where the C+K devices have been used in zoology/animal health.
Corneometer® CM 825
Sebumeter® SM 815
For more than 35 years the Sebumeter® has provided the worldwide most used method to reproducibly and accurately determine the sebum level of the skin surface, as well as on scalp and hair. The use on animal skin and hair is stated in literature.
Mexameter® MX 18
Tewameter® TM Hex
The Tewameter® with its “open chamber” principle is the worldwide most accepted measuring device for the assessment of the Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL). This important parameter has a large field of application in animal health or in efficacy testing of animal care products, e.g. hoof protection and many more fields.
